Just Magnolia – Lets Get Sentimental

Our challenge on Just Magnolia is “lets get sentimental” so we would like to see a sentiment on your card/project.  Hpw’s that for nice and easy hey! 

I have made another Christmas easel card – no surprises there then lol.

jm-xmas-vintage-aug10

I have used another of last year’s stamps that I found in that pack (there were 20 odd Magnolia stamps in there that I got at the NEC last November – shocking!!)  This one is called Christmas Morning – I LOVE her hair.  She has been coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils and I used:

Skin:  E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair:  E79, E77, E74, E70, E50 plus black Prisma pencil
Dress: BG13, BG11, BG10, E41, E40  plus turquoise and black Prisma pencil
Candle:  Y26, Y21,  E41, E40 plus black Prisma pencil

jm-xmas-vintage-aug101 

The papers are Eline’s Old Fashioned Christmas, they are truly sublime!  So vintagey, chock full of aquas, browns, pinks and creams – my favourite colours.  The doily behind the image is a Marianne D die, that I picked up when I got the Christmas paper.

I was originally just going to have the Be Merry sentiment on the top part of the card but it was overpowered by the flowers (get real Bev –the challenge is Sentimental!!) so I added the Elzybells Cosy Winter Wishes sentiment to the bottom of the card.

The lace was originally cream, so I spritzed it with Creme de Chocolat Glimmer Mist to die it brown.  It faded a fair bit as it dried but I really like the uneven, grungy look the mist has given the lace.

The gorgeous flowers were given a spritz with Old Lace Glimmer Mist to dirty them a bit.  I used Classic Sweet Rose, 30mm wild rose, 15mm roses, 4mm rose buds, 8mm semi open roses.  The pink pearls are also from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I love this image so much I might have to give this one away for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Saturday Surprise lol.

Thanks for stopping by,
